“These songs promise an even richer experience than the band’s earlier albums. With each release, The Lost Patrol gets better. ”
“There's much to find in the highways & backwoods of The Lost Patrol.”
“Lost Patrol are busting out of any anglophile-oriented, post-dreampop, guitar-effect-dominated, 4AD-ish ghetto; Rocket is sprawling, glistening music as full of bursting beauty as 11 red roses springing open—and as dazzling as their World’s Fair (Queens) at supernova-dusk sleeve. Wow.”
“The most significant thing about the Lost Patrol's Rocket Surgery is it has a uniqueness that reminds you of those few experiences when you first heard something that opened your ears, eyes and mind to a new way of thought and emotion. Familiar but never derivative, it suggests that magical time of youth when your imagination could be set afire, transporting you to another space and time. Exploring vast, strange landscapes, Rocket Surgery combines the best of memory and offers something distinctive and fresh, highly recommended. ”
“While the album does cast a mood over the listener as if some type of harmless happy gas is wafting from the speakers, the songs shift from dreamy and playful to aggressive and violent without breaking character. Like a good film, “Rocket Surgery” gets reality out of the way for a few minutes. ”
“Like classic film noir, the music of The Lost Patrol wraps doom and gloom in a smoothly stylish cloak of seductive romantic intrigue, and Rocket Surgery is no exception to a rule this band made and will never break. ”
“The fresh scent of an acidic rain coated black top, your head huddled beneath the heaviest of hazes formed via the amalgamation of oceanic foam and a cool breeze washing over the coast, unsure of where you’ll end up or what will meet you around the next bend. The uncertainty is as comforting as the churning mist is captivating, and that’s what experiencing The Lost Patrol full-length, Rocket Surgery, is like. The cavernous collection of musical artistry and smoke smothered Surf-Rock numbers would suffice nicely in a late-night vampiric cabaret...”
“... As usual, Gossip Girl music delivers! Gossip Girl songs featured in this episode include Sorta’s “Gone Away,” Miss Eighty 6’s “Horror Story,” New Young Pony Club’s “Oh Cherie,” The Lost Patrol’s “On The Run,” Alana D’s “Turn it Up,” The Black Keys’ “Tighten Up” and Miss Mercury’s “One Night Only.” Hot Chip contributes two Gossip Girl songs: “Keep Quiet” and “One Life Stand.””
“Guitars still shimmer with almost endless reverb, but the individual songs clearly demonstrate more variety in construction, both instrumentally and vocally.”
“4 out of 5 Stars The Lost Patrol has created a lot of buzz with each release and performance. As they mature, their music becomes so much more defined and distinctive. With their new album, Midnight Matinee, The Lost Patrol ups the ante of indie Rock and Roll. ”
"Ethereal, mysterious, achingly beautiful"
